Brit boxer Scott Fitzgerald left with two horror black eyes after war with Anthony Fowler

Eddie Hearn has shared a shocking picture of a battered Scott Fitzgerald after he beat Anthony Fowler on Saturday.

 

The 27-year-old survived a ninth round onslaught before sending rival Fowler to the canvas and winning on a split decision.

 

And promoter Hearn put the image on to his Instagram page with the Preston brawler barely able to see as he takes a selfie.

 

Both eye sockets appear various shades of purple and blue thanks to some accurate punching from Fowler at Liverpool’s M&S Bank Arena.

Hearn said: “Toughest sport in the world! Always respect the fighters!

 

“New @wbaboxingofficial international champ @scottfitz91 after his war on Saturday.”

 

Fitzgerald took home the WBA international super welterweight title after his win.

 

And he posted a heartfelt message to his on-off girlfriend Jaz Jaz, who is also the father of his child.

He said: “Wouldn’t of got here without this Angel not a chance!

 

“Heard a few horrible rumours going around that I’ve left my ex alone to bring up our child but that isn’t true and I want to help and support as much as possible, I’m a good person, I’ll be the best dad ever #promise.”

 

Fitzgerald looks set to face Ted Cheeseman next after the BBBC ordered the Londoner to defend his British title against him in July.
